Here's the int questions.  The entire list is too big to post (50k),
so it's here:


Should the following values be ints (limited to 2G)?

 * dict counts (ma_fill, ma_used, ma_mask)
 * line #s and column #s
 * AST (asdl.h) sequences
 * recursion limit
 * read/write/send/recv results and buf size
 * code object values like # args, # locals, stacksize, # instructions
 * sre (i think i have a patch to fix this somewhere)

Please try to review the APIs and let us know if there are any values
you think should be 64-bits on 64-bit platforms.
